School intercedes on suicide attempt

Police and fire personnel responded to a report of a suicidal student Friday, May 2, at Estacada High School.

Principal Scott Sullivan said the student had ingested over-the-counter medication, though the motivation was unclear. The student was treated by fire personnel.

Sullivan said the student is OK and has been working with counseling services.

Sullivan said that while there have been a few suicides in the Estacada School District’s history, suicides and suicide attempts are “not something that happens all the time.”
